Functional health foods for the active consumer
Protein is a highly sought-after nutrient, especially among sports people and those leading an active and healthy life. This preference for protein extends to the wider population because many know that protein helps support weight management and the feeling of satiety.
Protein has been popular for decades, and now another criterion influencing food purchasing decisions has emerged. Consumers are increasingly seeking organic, natural, wholesome foods that also deliver functional and health benefits.
The result of innovation
Lacprodan MicelPure® is an ingredient that offers a number of health benefits for consumers seeking naturally high-protein food options. It is suitable for applications in the sports nutrition and health food industries, enabling you to develop great-tasting products such as:
- Ready-to-drink beverages
- Powder shakes

With our micellar casein isolate, Lacprodan MicelPure® , you can achieve high protein levels in products that appeal to today’s health-conscious consumers. It has a mild taste which meets consumer expectations around organoleptic properties.

Micellar casein isolate is directly extracted from milk and produced using direct and gentle processing without the addition of harsh acids. This retains the protein in its native form, meaning that the protein keeps its original chemical structure even after processing.
Why are native proteins important? They are consistent with the consumer desire to eat food that is as wholesome and as close to nature as possible. Our micellar casein isolate’s native proteins make this achievable.
